(insert really gorgeous laughing photo here)
i mean, not funny haha, but funny like WHOA.
when i’m going for funny hahah i usually try to outsource that to my friend jason vaile. 😉
so… we started this new thing in treehouse a few weeks ago where we give kids a question to ask God. then we give them 90 seconds of silence to listen and see if he replies.
this week we talked about heaven being a real place. then the question we asked God “who do you want me to tell about heaven this week”?
while i spent my 90 seconds God gave me a name.
this was my internal response… “what? i dont even like her. and besides, how am i going to talk to her about this? i dont even see her anymore… am i supposed to make an appointment? ‘uh, hey there, i dont ever really talk to you… but by the way… just wanted to chat a little bit about heaven’…”
when the 90 seconds were over, i asked everyone to raise their heads and share who was put on their heart. a few of them answered… it was sweet. then i told them about what God told me. i told them that it was someone i dont even really like that much and that i have no reason to see or run into. a 5th grader said “well, so are you going to tell her tomorrow?!” boom. i said, “maybe not tomorrow but ask me next sunday… and we’ll see what happens”… thinking to myself, hm, now i have to do it! but how?
i woke up and thought, hm….
then i got an email.
from this person.
asking a group of people for a favor and if we would be willing to drive on a field trip… with this person.
i called alex and said, i guess i’m driving on a field trip on thursday.
has anything like that happened to you recently?
have you taken the time to listen… after you’ve read or learned?
i’ll let you know what happens.
